Bahia please stop growing

My Bahia lawns still have some stalks this week. I cut them short last week and they still need to be cut. Last year It was much different and slowed down sooner. I am ready for Eow . It cant come fast enough.

Not sure if you got the same amount of moisture as we did last weekend. We got roughly 10 inches last weekend...so some of the Bahia has perked right back up again.

I am with him - I am so ready for EOW....we were able to skip two bahia lawns this week as well as one that is Bermuda/SA mix. The Bermuda was going brown too - but we will see with all the rain.

Deer down here are tiny, no need to fatten up for tough winters.
